Calories And Weight Loss: How Much Calories To Lose Weight

Author : Samantha Frost

Calories and weight loss go together. There is a certain amount of calories one needs to get rid to lose weight. While people would rather go on a diet than work out studies have shown that you must do both to lose weight. Exercise can help you burn fats easier while dieting helps you accumulate less fat. strictly implementing both in your daily habit ensures you of a healthy, sexier body. But what does calories and weight loss have to do with exercising and dieting? Incorporating a low calorie diet with proper exercise helps you lose weight.

If you want to know the amount of calories you need to burn everyday, you must know first how many calories you need to intake everyday. Once you know how much you need, you can then gradually reduce your daily calorie intake into a desired calorie amount for you to lose weight. The whole equation can get very technical and if you wish to check how it is computed, there are many websites you can search for or better there are free calorie calculators out there you can try to compute for your required daily calorie consumption . Calorie intake is reduced gradually as it orders the body to use up fat rather than burn proteins in the muscles which happens when you quickly remove calorie intake in your body. This is the reason why you need to know how much calorie you should cut off from your diet to allow you to plan on how to do it in gradual motion.

Calorie intake depends upon many factors of the physical human body such as height, weight, age, gender and activities. Activities per day may be hard to measure hence it is measured on your regular daily activities. On an average, women are required to consume around 2000 calories each day to sustain daily activities while men on the average requires more and is around 2500 calories each day. This is just the average and are completely different per individual thus a more accurate details are needed for one to be able to develop his own calories and weight loss program.

On the average, people are advised to start off with reducing calorie intake by 500 calories from what your body requires. After about a week when your body has already established itself with the new energy system you can increase an additional 200 calorie reduction. So now, you will have to take 700 calories less than your required calorie intake. Doing it in this pace will allow your body to adapt to the new system and institute a new energy equilibrium rather than abruptly cutting calorie intake which can result in slower metabolism.

Calories and weight loss are very much intertwined as calorie intake can affect weight loss. With proper administration, reduction in calorie intake can have very pleasing weight loss results. Just remember to do it gradually though as you do not want to slow down your metabolism rate.
